7:07 pm
a year more in taxes than it gets back from madrid which hasn't insisted public services into austerity cuts. this is not fair i mean we are the ones who are. doing our best in mccormick reasons we cannot have all the weight of these measures and the central government that for us is the one who is spending the most and not in the best way last september barcelona witnessed one of the largest separatist rallies here since the nineteen seventies over one and a half million catalans took to the streets to call for independence but the path to becoming a new european state is far from smooth the proposed referendum is against the spanish constitution what's more withdrawing from spain could also force this region to drop out of the european union those against separatism believe it could do more harm than good. separatism for going alone or would be an economic disaster multi-national companies located in barcelona for access to the spanish working and
7:08 pm
being in the e.u. that would be lost which more even of separatism does not happen just talking about it creates uncertainty and that is the last thing the economy needs during this current crisis. with poll suggesting after mass will win reelection barcelona and madrid look set free showdown the president this banished military association colonel leopoldo sanchez has even suggested it might lead to another civil war political parties dismissed that as extreme rhetoric but remaining catalans you have this weekend will mark the first step towards the breakup of spain. andrew farmer the r.t. catalonia. carlos adult quotes a sociologist from pompei you fabray university in barcelona says that pro independence politicians will not bring about any real difference to the way catalonia is governed. the unemployment here is around that twenty five percent that is the unemployment in the rest of the state and there's also over fifty
7:09 pm
percent youth unemployment i mean it wasn't too long ago that members of our to the masses party told spanish catalan use you know go serve coffees in england and learn english because there's no work for you here now that generates a lot of rejection and we're probably going to see some manifestation of that in the electorial result it's definitely true that the lumia does have a higher g.d.p. for instance in the than other regions of spain but they have a lot more debt and they've been acting austerity they enacted austerity year before the rest of the of the spanish state so there's not a lot of there's nothing really to suggest that it would be that much better out into the mass did say that you know the day after elections there are still going to be you know austerity measures and budget cuts and layoffs and people out in the street but what's been remarkable about this these elections is the degree to which appealing to the nationalist sentiment has completely trumped i guess the
7:10 pm
discussion in the public sphere about austerity and coming up later this hour no good turn goes unpunished norway appears to be suffering for its hospitality as radicalism is fast becoming a popular trend among the country's growing islamic community. to explain how a scandal involving football hooligans is becoming a springboard for the possible creation of a brand new continental turn of the. british live demo minister lynne featherstone said that since women have babies it allows men to pass them up on the letter to power and such a children are on. setback for women who want to be successful and equal to men so they want to give men the option of taking maternity leave or would that be
7:11 pm
paternity leave i don't know i kind of see the logic of her view but my question is featherstone is why exactly is success in the corporate world the primary goal of life for men and women as a feminist i would think you understand that wanting to fight your way up the ladder to buy a big car replace your shortcomings is a very male way of judging success are women who choose to have families failures or at least unsuccessful in your book even as a man i know that my pocket is really empty after having the first of hopefully many kids but i don't see our child as a financial setback keeping me from buying an x. box guess what success is relative to the goal and maybe a corporate boardroom vision of success isn't for everyone women who have kids are failures in my opinion but then again that's just my opinion. mission. critique ations free storage free. range

parents versus social workers docu nabby pm last stop me me that many children have become prizes to fight for why does the last threaten families of the social for it to see in the form of they have a right of will hold many more if they feel that they have any kind of suspicion about the well being of the of your children are often a just better at bringing up kids than their own mom and dad. from what we have an industry that is so. concentrated on the other for truth. and life for moscow this is our welcome back tolerance towards immigrants is something norway adopted centuries ago tens of thousands of people displaced by
7:14 pm
wars in their countries have found their way to the welcoming land of the vikings however some modern migrants are being accused of taking their new home for granted as maria financial reports. tolerance is no way as well known trademark maybe even to well known thirteen percent of the country's five million population a remembrance but it seems it may be suffering from its own hospitality not alone district near central oslo remarry in the region but sometimes people call these parts of the city started as if it's immigrant i mean it's a population for years has been home to large number of outsiders who've been living in peace and many locals treated respectfully some decided it's not enough a while ago that radical islamic group demanded to make it independent from the city and yes. area lot of territory to feel literally. in a letter sent to some of the country's politicians and journalists unknown
7:15 pm
extremists have threatened to carry out and nine eleven in no way if their demands are not met. it's really something. to be taken serious but this is not the first death threat coming from noways muslim community in this we do know a pakistani born in mom preaches those not sprain should be brought to prison those not fasting during ramadan decapitated is it possible to kill here in the river yeah no problem all weapon is made to kill we hear concerns over how some immigrants bring part of their culture is to know we from the head of the country's one thousand union on our hunting courses there were pending for muslims who seem to have more interest. in nature and helping attending courses is one of the two legal ways in no way to get a personal weapons license if you don't respect religion of rules and you want to.
7:16 pm
then you can go back to your country opposition party member he himself came to no way as a political refugee in the late eighty's he says the ruling labor party is importing voters immigrants are indeed him on the party's strongest supporters but the prize is high how can you integrate minority when the minority is actually the majority in the society who is going to learn from who is well who are you going to integrate such rhetoric is too familiar to every norwegian a homegrown terrorist killed seventy seven here last summer protesting against the takeover of muslim immigrants or someone to was one of those on that island last july his comrades and friends were killed. right in front of his very eyes he says he survived to fight for would brave it try to destroy the most important lesson is
7:17 pm
that we never can pay. ground and well use for ground we need. it's a fight we never win the fight for democracy or for justice it's something that we constantly need to focus on despite concern for the threat to kill made by some immigrants may be a real noways unlikely to give up its dollar and small toe in fact it's quite the opposite for many the only response to brave exe anti immigrant motivated massacre is seen immigrants embraced more than ever before marie for notion r t no way a local council in britain has removed three children from their foster family because of the parents' political views social workers accused of a couple of belonging to a racist political organization due to their support of the u.k. independence party earlier my colleague bill dodd spoke to paul nuttall an m.e.p. from ukip who described of the decision as outrageous. it's an absolute disgrace and i think it's a case of desperation really from the labor party we have
7:18 pm
a byelection rather than exactly in the same area where this terrible incident has taken place and the council of gone ahead and persecuted this family because they're members of ukip i'm not too sure whether this is a coincidence or not now your party is though critical of multiculturalism and political correctness is this incident an indication that perhaps you're being misunderstood in your failing to communicate your policies. absolutely not i think our policies are quite clear i think the fact that we're now around ten to twelve percent in the opinion polls goes ahead and shows that the fact is that miliband the leaders of the labor party has come out and said there needs to be an investigation into this michael gove the conservative education secretary has come out and said that this is a disgrace so we're getting backing not just from the people because the public is on the whole behind us on this they think it's a disgrace it would also getting the backing from other political parties as well so you agree with the whole idea that no matter what political persuasion couples
7:19 pm
are they should be able to adopt children. oh look this corporal have been foster parents for the past seven years they've been giving children homes and doing a good job what happens here this is a case of persecution i think it's absolutely wrong in the people who will suffer as a result will be the children because what will happen to these children now look at but it isn't isn't bringing children up in a political environment of consideration for example would you be happy to see members of the british nationalist party adopting or fostering children for a political party accused of racism. well look i think each case needs to be taken on a sole basis and we are not a racist party it's quite clear as written into our constitution we actually van members who have been members of the british national party in the past we are completely and also the answer braces could ukip see this is a political advantage and bring to the attention the fact that the adoption fostering laws in the u.k. really do need a shake up understand that seven out of eight parents are rejected the. possibility
7:20 pm
to foster or adopt it is that an area that perhaps the you could now pursue. well i think it's something that certainly needs to be looked at i mean there are seventy thousand children in care in this country which quite frankly is obscene that is too many and what we need to be doing is getting these children out of care and into good homes because you know the statistics don't rely on those children in care are more likely to go or prison and not to well at school etc the best places for children in care to be is with loving families and that's why this whole thing is obscene. now time to take a look at some other stories making headlines around the world this hour. ten thousand people have clashed with police in thailand during anti-government protests and officers used tear gas to disperse the crowd as they tried to break through barricades the demonstrators accuse the prime minister of corruption and holding anti monarchy stance authorities say the army could be called in if the situation gets out of control. the remains of late palestinian leader yasser
